Brian Karem took a bold stand in the name of freedom of the press.
Things got heated during today's White House press briefing over a familiar topic: fake news.
After Breitbart's Charlie Spiering asked a question about CNN's decision to retract and apologize for a controversial story about connections between one of President Donald Trump's allies and Russia, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tore into media outlets for running what she called "fake news directed at this president."
The goal was clear: to sow distrust in reporting that made the administration look bad. It's been done time and time again.
